A compressor is a vital part of the air conditioning system. In fact, it is the heart of the unit and plays a key role in cooling the air indoors. Every commercial and residential air conditioning unit has a compressor, without which there can be no cooling throughput. It is heaviest part of a typical air conditioning unit and needs to be strong enough to withstand a significant amount of pressure. Have we ever wondered how a compressor works? Key tasks include generating the required flow of refrigerants through a series of chambers and compressing it sufficiently to increase the temperature above the ambient so that heat is rejected from the home air conditioning system. The refrigerant is compressed and packed tightly and slowly flows through the condenser coil, where the heat leaks out into the air and cools the fluid down. The refrigerant then flows through a small nozzle into the evaporator coil into the evaporator, which is a low pressure coil. When the refrigerant is depressurized it cools down quickly and then flows through the evaporator. A fan in the air conditioner blows on the evaporator, cooling the air and blowing it out of the air conditioner.
All in all, air conditioning maintenance plays an important part in preserving the life of the compressor. The central air conditioning unit of both residential and commercial heating and cooling systems need to be checked periodically to maintain compressor health.
